| Algorithmic equiresolution of deformations of embedded varieties - Augusto Nobile A theory of simultaneous resolution of singularities for families of embedded varieties (over a field of characteristic zero) parametrized by the spectrum of a suitable artinian ring, and compatible with a given algorithm of resolution, is presented. As usually, this a simple consequence of a similar theory for analogous families of basic objects, to which the main portion of this article is devoted. Downloads: 2 | |

| Resolution Algorithms and Deformations - Augusto Nobile An algorithm for resolution of singularities in characteristic zero is described. It is expressed in terms of multi-ideals, that essentially are defined as a finite sequence of pairs, each one consiting of a sheaf of ideals and a positive integer. This approach is particularly simple and, as indicated by some results shown here, it seems suitable for applications to a good theory of simultaneous algorithmic resolution of singularities, specially for families parametrized by the spectrum of an ar...

| Algorithmic equiresolution of possibly non-reduced families of singularities - Augusto Nobile This paper studies the concept of algorithmic equiresolution of a family of embedded varieties or ideals, which means a simultaneous resolution of such a family compatible with a given (suitable) algorithm of resolution in characteristic zero. The paper's approach is more indirect: it primarily considers the more general case of families of basic objects (or marked ideals). A definition of algorithmic equiresolution is proposed, which applies to families whose parameter space T may be non-reduce... Downloads: 6 | |

| Bayesian finite mixtures: a note on prior specification and posterior computation - Agostino Nobile A new method for the computation of the posterior distribution of the number k of components in a finite mixture is presented. Two aspects of prior specification are also studied: an argument is made for the use of a Poisson(1) distribution as the prior for k; and methods are given for the selection of hyperparameter values in the mixture of normals model, with natural conjugate priors on the components parameters.

| The employment of airships for the transport of passengers - Nobile, Umbert It was a conclusion of this detailed study of the practicality of using airships for carrying passengers that, although slow, airships are capable of carrying useful loads over long distances. However, it is noted that there is a certain limit to the advantages of large cubature. Beyond a certain point, the maximum altitude of the airship goes on decreasing, in spite of the fact that the range of action in the horizontal plane and the useful load go on increasing...

| Interfering Composite Asymmetric Dark Matter for DAMA and CoGeNT - Eugenio Del Nobile We provide a simple mechanism for reconciling the direct dark matter experimental results. We consider light asymmetric composite dark matter which scatters off nuclei via Higgs and photon exchange. We demonstrate that the interference between these two channels naturally accommodates the experimental results. We discover that this happens for a compositeness scale of the order of the electroweak. We also provide a model realization based on strong dynamics at the electroweak scale. Downloads: 2 | |

Sufficient conditions are then given such that the density asymptotically exhibits an exponential behavior when the boundary is either asymptotically constant or asymptotically periodic.
